Authentic sailing experiences designed around you

How does it work?

Imagine spending a glorious day on the water, at a location of your choice, aboard a beautiful classic sailing boat. At The Classic Boat Company, we enable you to do exactly that without the challenge of buying, maintaining and preparing these gorgeous, but infinitely time-consuming craft.

Whether you want to sail a thoroughbred racing machine, or enjoy a more relaxed dinghy to create your own Swallows and Amazons experience, we provide you with the boat, professional crew and support boats so that you have an unforgettable experience.

Your safety is of paramount importance and we will ensure that we find the right boat for you. Our passionate team is committed to providing a memorable and rewarding time on the water for you, family, friends or colleagues.
